The above are all the "critical", "grave", and "important" bug reports, both
"pending" and "forwarded".

If you would like to help speed the release of the next Debian distribution,
you are encourage to take part in fixing these bugs.  More information about
them can be found on Debian's web page:  http://www.debian.org/Bugs/

These bugs can either be degraded below critical, grave, and important, or
they can be fixed in non-maintainer releases.

Alternatively, the package can be reverted to the version in Bo.  If this is
done, _don't_ close the bug but rather downgrade the severity of the bug
to "normal".

If there is a bug that you think must be fixed before the release of this
distribution, please upgrade its severity to critical, grave, or important.
For more info on this, see:  http://www.us.debian.org/Bugs/server-control.html
Be sure to copy the bug directly with the reason why the severity changed.
